Free "Forgotten Relics" Update available NOW!



Dear fellow Textorcists, the free content update The Textorcist: The Forgotten Relics is available NOW! We have added a new Boss Rush mode to the game, as well as Trinkets and the Hardcore Boss Fights (more information below - SPOILERALERT!).

Some additional features are:
  • You can now disable screenshake in the settings menu!
  • You can now use . and , for moving Ray, as seen in the dvorak keyboard layout. Just edit your favoured keys in the settings menu
  • A bunch of brandnew Steam Achievements

BOSS RUSH:
After finishing the game, players will unlock the Boss Rush mode by continuing the game.
This game mode can be accessed from the title screen and features all bosses in a row inside a new arena, with its own leaderboard and Trinkets enabled.

TRINKETS:

There are 30 (+1) Trinkets to be earned in the Story Mode.
Every Trinket can grant a bonus and lower the player’s score or can grant a malus and raise the player’s score. To get a Trinket, the player must defeat bosses and every boss can drop three Trinkets. Tier 1 Trinkets are dropped just by beating a boss, tier 2 Trinkets are dropped if the player beat a boss without losing hearts and tier 3 Trinkets are dropped if the player beats a Boss without any typing errors. Players start with 0 slots and by simply progressing with the story they will gain slots up to a maximum of 5. Trinkets can be equipped at the wardrobe in the hub. While equipping those, some simple rules are applied: players cannot equip as many Bonus Trinkets so the Score percentage is equal or less than 0%. Only one Action Trinket can be equipped at a time (Action Trinkets are activated by pressing SPACE), and the Monocle is the only Trinket used to access Hardcore Boss Fights and it's the only Trinket that must be equipped alone.

THE MONOCLE AND HARDCORE BOSS FIGHTS:
After finishing the game, players will get the Monocle (31st Trinket) by continuing the game after watching the cutscene. This particular Trinket comes with a stone to be found in the hub. By equipping this special Trinket, players will be granted access to the Hardcore Boss Fights accessible from the world map. Hardcore Bosses are the same story bosses, but they behave as follows: all moves are shuffled, the bosses attack relentlessly without down-times, spells are shuffled, players have only one life. After beating a Hardcore Boss, the stone in the hub will gain a new piece until completion. With the Monocle equipped, the player’s score is highly raised and goes in the same leaderboards as the story mode.

Note: The beta branch version has all the trinkets already unlocked and you can fight all the bosses right from the start. The leaderboards are only in test mode and the score will not be visible in the regular version.

“The Textorcist is a punishing, brutally difficult game that feels so good to finally conquer. A truly unique and engaging combat system accompanied by great music make this a memorable experience.”
8.5 – Critical Hit

“Faster, more tense, and more exciting than almost any traditional action game. [...] The implementation hasn’t quite been perfected, but it gets close enough to be absolutely recommended.”
4/5 – We Got This Covered

“The Textorcist is the most physically uncomfortable, mentally draining, panic inducing sadist of a game I have ever forced myself to play. And my Holy God is it awesome.”
9/10 – GameGrin

About This Game

Get ready for an electrifying mix between bullet hell and typing game! Dodge bullets while typing exorcisms at the very same time: turn on both sides of your brain and jump into the adventure of Ray Bibbia, a private exorcist who's going to face the threats of a demonic outbreak and deal with his dark and sinful past at the same time!



A city in decay, streets filled with thugs, crime and censorship and only one man to stop it all. Groundbreaking gameplay, exorcists, demons, metal singers, pimps, the Pope, drama, bad jokes and tons of hardcore action-filled boss battles for the first type ‘em up game ever realized.


In order to defeat the forces of evil, learn how to type your exorcisms with your keyboard or with your joypad WHILE dodging tons of bullets, dealing with puddles of barf, defusing bombs, singing at the mic of a metal show and more during intense Boss Battles: easier said than done. Hold your Bible tight, both hands needed!


Rome is the theatre of our adventure, discover new locations and fight in one of the biggest metropolis in history, home of some of the craziest characters and enemies! Behind a demonic outbreak, unearthly forces are scheming to seize power and subvert the order of the the biggest religious organization in Rome: The Holy Church has reached unlimited powers over the streets of the city, but how can our protagonist be sure of their good deeds? Unravel the demonic plot aimed to overturn the order in the city and put together the pieces of the dark past behind Ray Bibbia!


From Goth maids to gun-crazed gangsters and the Pope himself, Ray will get his hands dirty by exploring a great variety of locations to solve a mystery that’s going to grow heavier as it takes shape. Who’s gonna turn out to be a friend and who’s gonna stab Ray behind his back?

Are you a fast typer? Can you read and spell latin while you dodge bullets? THIS is the game you're looking for! Real exorcisms, english, latin and more! Avoid making mistakes and reach the highest combo! Compete with your friends by spelling the “perfect exorcism” and compare with their scores on online leaderboards!


- An intense storytelling
- Tons of bullets
- Lots of typing
- 10 Boss fights
- Challenging twisted typing mechanics for every boss
- Type even to open a door
- Type on a Holyvetti computer
- Show it off with online leaderboards
- Play with the keyboard for a typing experience or with a gamepad for a rhythm experience
- Original Soundtrack composed by GosT
- Some more Bullets


All these features and even more, if you're a fan of shooters, a masochist, a wannabe exorcist, or you just need some black comedy in your life, don't miss The Textorcist!
